PVC Heat Shrink Tubing

Our PVC heat shrink tubing has a low shrink temperature and superior strength. Both our thin wall heat shrink tubing and medium wall heat shrink tubing have been engineered for total compatibility with PVC jacketed wire and cable to insulate, identify, bundle, protect, repair and beautify in electronic, electrical and mechanical applications. Our crystal clear heat shrink tubing and all assorted heat shrink tubing colors are UL-VW-1 flame retardant, with outstanding chemical and UV resistance. UV protective additives makes PVC tubing ideal for outdoor applications. 

PVC Characteristics
